"GetRecordBasename found no entry" is output when the query:
SELECT basename FROM recorded
WHERE chanid = :CHANID AND
starttime = :STARTTIME;
finds no rows. Therefore, you probably have broken channel ID or broken
starttime data in a couple of rows of the recorded table of your DB.
Unfortunately, the logging info isn't very descriptive because that's a
section of code that should never be reached (can only be reached with
broken data). So, you'll have to do some investigating to see what
record is broken. On the bright side, it looks like only a couple rows.

Therein lies the crux of the problem... ;) The table that contains the
recording metadata is the recorded table, which is also the table which
has the broken data...
Because the data is partially corrupted now, I'd highly recommend a
"spring cleaning"--after you fix the data--as described at:
Once you get a good clean DB, see if the seg faults stop. If not, let
us know an we'll dig deeper. (No sense going deeper until the bad data
is fixed, though.)
